I’m a mother, nutritional therapist and author who has been sharing recipes to help you get the glow back for the last 8 years...
A few months ago I posted a blog on PCOS giving some tips to help alleviate symptoms and people seemed to really connect with it. It seems to be something that is on the rise.
A lot of people have asked to hear about my experience of it, so today I would like to share my story with you.
I have had issues with my period for years. I never had a regular cycle and went on the pill aged 16. When I was 21 I came off it as I was getting into healthy eating and it didn’t feel right to be putting these chemicals into my body.
I started to look into ways of helping restart my cycle. I met doctors, naturopaths and a healer. One of the most interesting things I cam across was that the healer says my energy was very masculine. This is never a comment you want to hear as a female without a period. However, she was right, I was masculine, I didn’t have a moustache but I was quite tough with myself, overly driven, rushing and busy. Of course we all have masculine and feminine energy but I was swinging the other side.
I got my periods back but they weren’t regular. I went to get a proper scan and they said I had slight Polycystic ovaries. After a Google search I was filled with horror over the hairy bear I was going to turn into.
However, I have seemed to manage and alleviate it with acupuncture with Emma Cannon, meditation, eating well, cutting out sugar.
I hope you enjoyed my story and if you have PCOS, I hope it makes you feel less alone. It is something you can live with and get through!
